Had my MRI/MRV and Blood work this morning and saw Dr Dake this afternoon. I am now off the Coumadin (yeah!!!!)
He said everything looked perfect on my stents. INR was 2.3, perfect he said. I filled out the questionaires again and he compared them and my answers were totally different this time around. My fatigue score was 32 this time compared to 63 2 months ago and my self assessed EDS was 2.5 compared to 4.5 2 months ago.
He showed me the pictures of my weird cyst and it is still there (it just has a stent next to it now)
He was very excited about my progress and is sending all my info to my Neuro and wants him to return my notes and test when I have my next MRI in February.
He is getting a lot of flack from Neuros about the procedure. All of you who have been know that he is very "here is the problem and let's fix it". I think that this is what is so wonderful about him.
Alex was not there and I was very sad we did not get to see her. We spent a lot of time with Angela and had a wonderful conversation while waiting to see Dr Dake.
No more blood thinners - Napa Valley here we come!!
